D2E Gallery


 

Chris and Michell Mathis are a husband and wife team, both self taught artists who have always loved the arts and working with their hands. Chris shares " I always have a need to create and design. It keeps my soul happy! "

In 2009 Chris started designing jewelry on her kitchen countertop, and sold her creations at a bingo hall where she worked. In 2010 she began booking and hosting home jewelry shows to sell her jewelry. By 2011 business was so successful that she needed to teach her husband how to create her designs. In September of 2011 they opened a brick and mortar artisan gallery & gift shop that currently supports the work of more than 60 American artists. The gallery was also a quick success so they began looking for shops and boutiques across the country that would showcase their jewelry. 
 
D2E's most recent creation the silk wrap bracelet has become an overnight favorite here at Artisan's. They are created with long hand dyed silk ribbons crafted by a Wisconsin artist. Inspirational charms are hand stamped in their own Indiana studio. Most of the charms have a hammered surface, and the letters and designs are set by tool and die method. Copper charms are sealed with a jewelers grade lacquer to prevent tarnishing and show of fingerprints. Each bracelet is knotted for character which offers a unique feature...adding a knot adjusts the size of the bracelet. Another unique feature is the strong magnetic clasp closure for easy wear. Chris and Michell are proud to say that the clasp is also made in the USA. We at Artisan's are watching closely for the next great design to
come from D2E.
